Blackpool Pleasure Beach: Everything You Need To Know About The UK’s Most Intensive Amusement Park
Blackpool Pleasure Beach, one of the resort’s biggest attractions, is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year.
If you’re planning on participating in this year’s festivities, check out our guide below to find all the information you need to make your day as enjoyable as possible.
The park is generally open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
If you fancy riding some of the park’s attractions in the dark, or just want more time to enjoy the thrills, the park is normally open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturdays.
To double-check the opening hours for the day of your visit, consult the official calendar by clicking HERE.
ETickets are electronic tickets that are downloaded to your phone like a boarding pass, replacing * wristbands and Pleasure Beach passes.
This means you can bypass the Ticket Center and enter the park directly through the main entrance to enjoy the rides.
* Wristbands will still be available at the ticket office.
ETickets can be displayed on your phone or printed before your visit.
There are a number of rides that customers can ride regardless of height restrictions, but it’s important to check them out before your visit to avoid disappointment.
To ride ICON, the all-new Blackpool Pleasure Beach ride and UK’s first dual-launch roller coaster, you need to be over 130cm (1.3m) – 150cm (1.5) tall for the back row .
Likewise, the iconic Big One, which measures 235 feet, has a minimum height restriction of 132 cm (1.32 m).
The full list of height restrictions can be found by clicking HERE.
On certain trips, if a child does not comply with the size restrictions, they can ride with a responsible person aged 12 or over who also has an eTicket.
All children can ride 19 rides at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, regardless of their size, as long as the child meets the following criteria:
– The child must be able to walk without assistance, that is to say, it must not be carried.
– The child must wear appropriate shoes.
– The child has an eTicket
Speedy Pass is Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s version of an expedited queue service.
The standard Speedy Pass is an additional £ 25 per person.
With the standard pass you wait the same time as the normal queue, but with a perk you don’t have to queue.
Your Speedy Pass countdown will alert you when it’s your turn to ride, allowing you to enjoy the rest of the park while Speedy Pass virtually queues for you.
The VIP PLUS Speedy Pass is £ 50 per person.
With this pass, your waiting time is reduced by 90% of the normal queue length, allowing you to ride even more rides during your visit.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach features 10 thrilling roller coasters, including ICON, as well as many other adrenaline-inducing attractions.
These include the classic Big Dipper, the Grand National, Avalanche, Infusion, Revolution and The Big One.
